One of the most iconic watch brands is Rolex. Rolex is founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf, a Bavarian marketing genius who focused on innovation. Watch enthusiasts have Wilsdorf to thank for many outstanding models and technical advances, including the first officially-certified wristwatches, the waterproof Oyster housing (the Datejust), and sports watches like the classic Submariner diver’s watch, which dates back more than fifty years. The Watch Book – Rolex is a very informative book filled with hundreds of photos made by the wristwatch expert and historian Gisbert L. Brunner. The book is a must-have for watch collectors and Rolex fans. The Rolex edition is the third volume of the successful The Watch Book series.

Get your copy of the The Watch Book – Rolex here at Mendo bookstore in Amsterdam.
